Larry Downey, senior director with Cushman & Wakefield'sArizona office, tells that National Bank of Arizona'spurchase of Pulte's former home in the Del Webb building at North24th St. in Phoenix sparked a yearlong search for newaccommodations that ended in a 10-year lease at the Papago ButtesCorporate Plaza. The company expects to move into the building inJune 2003.

The $6.5-million deal will give the area builder a modernfacility with upgraded technology and amenities, says Downey. "Notonly does it have a lot of onsite amenities," he explains of the1230 W. Washington St. plaza, "but it has a lot of internal cablingand other capabilities that will work well for their type ofuse."
